I read that Railroad Earth is coming to Portland for the NYE run at the Crystal Ballroom. Yep, same Crystal Ballroom as the Feb 68 GD shows. Anyway, this renewed my interest in RRE. I was listening to Travis Viars SBD recording of 06.03.11 RRE @ Smilefest. The sound was brilliant so I clicked on his name to see what else he had out there. Dang, he is linked to 166 shows, many are SBDs, and looks like most are in the bluegrass/jamgrass genre. Judging by the shows he is associated with I'd say he lives in North Carolina. Might be a guy to seek out when at a show in NC or festival in the Southeast. If nothing else you might want to mine his contributions to the Archive.

If you want to hear a magnificent RRE show you should give this show a listen:

http://archive.org/details/rre2003-04-26.matrix.shnf

It's .shn's not .flac's so you have to download it instead of just streaming it, but I guarantee that you'll love this show or I'll double your money back!

...and if you're in the mood for some traditional/old-timey bluegrass, this is a fantastic show by three very lovely ladies:

JD - Can't stop listening to that Run Little Rabbit show - thank you!
Sad to think they won't play another? I'd drive from NY to see it.
The 'Bright Morning Stars' arrangement is outstanding. Shows great depth and wonderful talent.

They're an incredible band that I wish that I could have seen more times and keep on seeing. The lead singer and fiddle player had another band together, kind of an Americana style band called Oriole Post. Here's my favorite recording from them:

Thanks, I'm familiar with SHNs so I'll download the RRE and it will be our traveling music to the Scout campout this weekend.

I watched the video, very talented ladies. I'll give them a listen later this afternoon while I rap up the workweek.

Thanks wineland....

Travis is a common sight at Big Daddy Love Shows - I may have spoken with him briefly at FloydFest this year as there was only one taper rig set up for the VIP sound check party wednesday night before the fest kicked off.

Good stuff - I take it you will be going to the RRE NYE run?

See you next week for crab cakes, then on 11/24 at the OBX Brewing Station for Big Daddy.

I'm going to ride out Sandy down in Manteo. Just hope the electricity stays on for The Walking Dead.

Be safe safe Rick.

Thanks D, you too - keep your head down. The OBX folks know how to handle things - as do you, so this should be a non-event for you. So far, so good....some wind and rain but I think we are going to be fine. This time tomorrow we should be in the clear. Test ran the generator yesterday, gassed up the trucks and staged the emergency kits and bug out bags - not expecting to need them, but since it is a law that the power only goes out at night, I don't want to be frogging around in the dark looking for stuff.

Mrs. Mando and I just finished making a big pot of chili - 26 different kinds of home grown peppers in this one.

Sweet: Green bell, Carolina Gold bell, Chocolate bell, Red bell, Orange bell, Red Marconi, Yellow Marconi, Sweet banana, Anaheim, Poblano, Red Corno di Toro, Purple Beauty bell.

Hot: Hot banana, Ghost, Trinidad Butch "T", Trinidad Scorpion Tail, Carribean Red, Yellow Fatali, Orange habanero, Scotch Bonnett habanero, Red Savina habanero, White habanero, Chocolate habanero, Willy pepper, Lantern pepper, Thai Dragon pepper, Chinese 5 Color Aji.

Fukushima ain't got nothing on me.....

What night is good for 219 crabcakes?

We are safe, thank you for your concern. I don't think North Carolina is in for anything like what New Jersey is going to get. I scored a couple pounds of fresh local green shrimp this morning, along with a few Bigeyes so I'm in good shape...

We usually have plans for NYE with the wineland clan, so probably not on the 31st. Right now I have the 29th and 30th on the calendar. I can't imagine a better band will be in town that night.

Very cool. Thanks for sharing the neat find. So many sbds with no reviews that I probably never would have stumbled upon. I'm familiar with most of the bands I see in that list. I'll def be checking these out.

Nice, thx for another rec. I enjoy most of the recommendations you've made in the past, and I'm sure this will be no exception.

Arb -

ER crushed their set before a very appreciative crowd at Festy this year. Phenomenal stuff - there was a bunch of chatter about them being too low energy and too "dark and downer" for a predominantly high energy bluegrass line-up but they really knocked it out of the park.
